I had a busy day yesterday ingesting more beer than my body can safely hand. Fitting then that Blair releases the March 2011 Newsletter on Toolband that get the collection nuts of Fourtheye abuzz with excitement. Here’s an excerpt:
In the spirit of this newsletter about Tool memorabilia, "Merch" is going to be putting some nice stuff in the store tomorrow (consider this a head’s up). These items will include vintage tee-shirts (those now out of circulation), tour posters (maybe even a couple of signed ones), and at least one real gem that will have some fans salivating. In the meantime, keep hunting for those Tool rarities. They would sure look good next to that souvenir tour poster that you purchased at the last show.
Well all love a bit of Tool merch, and I know many of you have been hitting up Toolarmy in readiness for this sale,
however as I write this tomorrow has yet to arrive and there are no goodies on the site. Perhaps tomorrow tomorrow… Looks like stuff is there – check the Collectibles section!
In other news, A Perfect Circle will be announcing on-sale details for their summer tour on the 4th of April. Presumably this will be the times that tickets go on sale and at what outlets. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of further dates, however there is plenty of speculation (and a gap in the schedule) suggesting that A Perfect Circle could be one of the acts on Lollapallooza this year.
Speaking of APC, drummer Josh Freese has released another range of unique purchase options for his latest EP My New Friends. The $75k package which included a ride in Danny’s Lamborghini was offered, and as I write this appears to have finally sold to someone! Presumably it was purchased for me as a gift for my birthday later this month – thanks in advance!
Tool merch is cool and all, but nothing would beat owning a genuine piece of Melvins history! Point your credit cards at this Ebay auction and buy King Buzzo’s old Hiwatt Cabinet. Current bidding puts it at US$405. Bargain!
